. >>> coming up, the ghost of george w. bush. chronic lies and deceptions of the bush administration in iraq have undermined the case for action in syria. don't you think? as one british member of parliament put it, the well has been poisoned. too many crying wolf out there. >>> also the obama/clinton alliance. bill clinton is making a big speech next week at his library pushing the affordable care act. who is the big dog trying to help? the current president or possible future one? >>> plus, segregation laws are a thing of the past. yeah. but we have often self-segregated ourselves into black neighborhoods and white neighborhoods. tonight, the challenges and culture shock for the african-american youngster when he leaves his neighborhood for college. >>> finally, let me finish with the usual suspects pushing this war in syria. and this is "hardball." the place for politics. i think farmers care more about the land than probably anyone else. we've had this farm for 30 years. we raise black and red angus cattle. we also produce natural gas. that's how we make our living and that's how we can
is doing is exactly what george w. bush did in the fall of 2002 when he went before the general assembly and said the international community has to take its responsibility for disarming hussein. >> i have to take a break. george w. bush also said i'm giving you hussein, one more chance before i invade your country. >> that in effect is what the president is doing right now. >> can i say, i misspoke earlier and said the secretary of state and the president went to play golf, it was the vice president. you don't like that. >> this doesn't look good. there was a moment when hillary clinton was secretary of state, she was going to istanbul for a conference on syria. she stopped in south africa and cut a rug on the dance floor in south africa. many people in the region war wondering what kind of behavior is this. we now have the president, this a somber moment in the life of our country and region and 1400 people have been killed in this attack, it's good to forego the golf course. >> no one is denying, all adult, everyone needs to relax but you have to be at least aware of the optics. >> yo
that from george w. bush w who will not enter into the fray of this but understands what president obama is going through. he has been in that oval office. making these tough calls. there is only a few living americans who will understand how difficult these positidecis are. >> we are given the heads up of 1:15 eastern time for this statement. as often happens, with this white house, it is a bit delayed. we don't have a two-minute warning as of yet. we are back with our panel, chris wallace and ollie north. what do you expect him to say? is this more laying out the case? >> i think we will probably -- with a situation where he will announce he will continue to deliberate on this and will try to build some relationships. my guess is because the window is so narrow. you would have to do this tomorrow night. sunday might. because he is not going to do it before he briefs the rest of the members of congress. that's going to be tomorrow. he is going to leave monday night for sweden and then -- but -- that gives him essentially sunday night or monday night to make the attack. you probably don'
and continued through george bush's years in office, 2008. >> president obama inherited the recession in 2009 and lasted for six months. it officially ended in june of 2009, president obama's first term. when the recession hit in 2007, unemployment was at 4.7%. today, it is at 7.4%. so, unemployment is still 2.7% higher than what it was before the great recession, 2007-2009. item, job losses. during the 2007-2009 reception, 8.7 million jobs were lost, but since 2009 end, 6.7 million jobs have been created over the four-year period, 2009 to 2013. that means we are still at a deficit of 2 million jobs. >> do you have the impression sitting here as five auditors? >> i hope not. >> you want to do anything with these numbers before we all collapse of bored em? >> ? >> all of us who work in print and media have seen what happens with the seismic changes like amazon and the new internet economy that we are in. this also offers a lot of opportunities. jeff bazo's taking over the washington post, for example. he understands distribution, how to get books out right away. the post knows newspapers. >> t
of then senator biden threatening to impeach then president george bush if he did not get congressional approval before going into iraq. this is becoming a cauldron of uncertainty. it is not good for the region -- >> president clinton lost some missiles in afghanistan. a lot has been written about how that in the end lead to 9/11. you never know about the unintended consequences here, do you? >> no, you don't. president clinton lobbed some missiles into southern iraq and at that point, a lot of people, a lot of our enemies took the notion that we were a paper tiger, that we were not willing to follow through with the actions and that we wanted to just do something. now is not the time to just do something. we ought to have a plan and now that the president has backed up , it is time to all come together and figure out what is it we really want to do that is in the national security interestses of the united states of america and then do it. >> i wanted to -- what greg just mentioned leads into my question. this is all coming down on the anniversary of 9/11. if the house votes what is the chance

worried about presidents who act unilaterally and he's doing it again just like george bush did. we made george bush come back to the congress and get a vote before we went into iraq. the congress, i think, made a mistake in doing it, but at least we all took responsibility for what happened. in this one, the president is taking it all on himself. what's the hurry and what is the goal? what are you expecting to be the goal that we accomplish day two after we've shot in 50 tomahawk missiles? when we have taken out assad? is that the goal? or is it take out the syrian army? or is it to lay the country waste to make rubble? what is it we are intending to get out of this? >> you clearly want a vote on this, and some of our viewers have been tweeting about this and there's a lot of consternation, obviously, as we stand now in the precipice of what looks like another war in the middle eve. one viewer writing into me, the president needs a vote here if for no other reason to have cover for what happens afterwards. do you think there will be political recriminations after the fact if the preside

a coalition of countries and attack soon no matter what others may say. today former president george bush said hey, good luck with that. let me know how that works out. i'd be curious, yes, yes. >> wow. welcome to the sideshow that was jay leno last night on the topic making headlines today, syria. well, "the tonight show" certainly hasn't shied away from us policy lately, foreign or domestic. here he was on the irs' reversal on same-sex marriage. >> now the irs announced for first time it will treat same-sex marriages the same as heterosexual ones. that shows how far we have come, when gay couples can be screwed by the irs just the same as straight couples. yes, yes. yes. >> wow. well, i guess there are two sides to every coin. >>> finally, the nixon tapes released last week are a treasure trove of material for historians. i actually listened to the last conversation the former president had on tape before the recording system was shut down, removed from the white house in july of '73. classic nixon here. here he is speaking with his secretary, rosemary woods, just before leaving for hos
throughout this whole iraq, that george bush was unilateral without a you couldand now argue obama has less of a coalition than bush did. bush didn't get the u.n. he was forced, but did get a u.n. resolution saddam hussein was out of compliance with u.n. he hads and bush argued a right to go and he also got permission from congress with and hillary clinton voting for him. it doesn't look like barack congress. wait for >> i think this is a case where the administration seems to have decided this is going to be on willing to do it, not only for the region itself region,allies in the but also for the case of iran which is one where the united states the which has said ryan braun -- not be permitted to have a nuclear weapon, the thatistration is conscious if we don't act, the president having elevated that red line, they're going to conclude -- >> conclude -- gwen: that word credibility runs through this whole thing which what we say oro no one will believe us. >> kerry brought that up explicitly. gwen: and also kerry talked about the american public exhaustion with this. bit moreten a little o

with, i don't know, george bush. [laughter] the example's gotten a little dated. dickenson, i wrote a book about dickenson's relationship to a man named thomas wentworth higginson because it was this idea of this strange historical moment when you have the reclusive poet par chance who never crosses her father's house or grounds for anybody or anything enter into a 25, 24, 25-year friendship with a pan named thomas higginson, lost to us now except, of course, from me. but lost to us now but famous in his own time as a fervent abolitionist. and so fervent was he that he was the leader of the first federally-authorized group of black troops during the civil war, long before the massachusetts 54th which was stationed in, of all places, south carolina. so in that particular sense, i was very intrigued by the particular period, wanted to know much more about it, wanted to do it justice, and that was my first or one of my first questions to myself is how can i be responsible to the complications, the pain, the sorrow, the death, the death tolls of the great sense of liberation, the great
george bush and say, well, bring it on. and this is a real problem for the u.s. so, now, the u.s. is saying, well, look, this is partly designed to restore credibility and that's not a very good reason to launch, you know, an armed attack. so -- >> let me -- let me get a final brief question in: how will the rest of the region be impacted if the u.s. strike goes ahead? >> the rest of the region will certainly see an enhancement of the poliarization that's alread there, e ideal logical, dependig upon the strike where it hits and what targets, there will probably be greater flows of refugees which will exacerbate the situation in lebanon and jordan. it may or may not strengthen the opposition and it may strengthen the secularist groups. there will be many different reactions and the likelihood is that most people around the region original, not everybody, but most people, will raise the question again of: why does the united states use military action unilaterally to enforce international norms but doesn't do anything about international norms, say, that apply to the israeli se
is princeton political historian, in washington, former speech writer for former george w. bush, and by phone bill nelson of florida. mr. nelson, senator nelson, i want to start with you. you say you do support the president here. you do support a limited military strike, but you say you would rather we strike right now. why not wait for congressional approval? >> i've seen the evidence. and it is so conclusive and the question is, as commander in chief, do you have a responsibility in the civilized world to draw that line and say that an actor cannot use a weapon of mass destruction, chemical, biological, or nuclear, without consequences. as the president said today, he believes he has the authority of what he is reaching out is to get that additional backup from the legislative branch. i don't think that's necessary, but i'm certainly going to vote for the authorization. >> david fromme, we have you with us right now. this seems like a big moment that in some ways the president obama seems to reset power here in terms of using military forces. we didn't go to congress in libya. it's not som
into the tony blare's comments with george bush on the microphone? oh, assad is like honey? what were they talking about? they seemed to like him. >> i don't recall that one. i recall the explaytive. referring to the g8 meeting in 2006 when -- during the israel hezbollah war, and bush leaned over to blare and whatever he called him, he said, you know, if we request get syria to stop this, put a four letter explaytive there, that will calm the situation, and what was interesting about, you know, that comment, and bush did not like that after 2003, 2004 particularly, and i asked bashar about that comment, and i said, what do you think of that comment by bush caught on tape? again, half expecting him to say, oh, you know, typical this, typical all that sort of stuff, he said, i love it. i love it because that means they are thinking about me. they are worried about me. that is part of syria foreign policy is having some sort of leverage. it's a weak country military militarily. the leverage is through the support of hezbollah, iran, support of hamas and palestinian territories. that's th
george w. bush and 18 times larmer than it was under president clinton. i don't support going to syria in a military invasion but we need to have the financial and political tackle foreign entanglement, and drowning under the tsunami of debt doesn't allow to us protect ourselves. >> david: one angle of this is iran supports assad. he supports the guy we're going after in this battle. iran hasser i has terrorists tot costly for us with political and financial capital. >> that wouldn't change my view. conservatives have to get real. if they're for a smaller government they can't have military force defending some of the richest countries in the world. if we dislike healthcare here we have to not support military care for other countries. >> we have to provide umbrella. if we withdraw from the worlds the countries will defend themselves and that's a volatile world. i don't want japan to have nuclear arms. europe today war is inconceivable there. >> this is a region that takes years or decades if not centuries to build democracy. they have a version of their religion that negates a plurali
administrations and 24% during the george w. bush years. do women have a right to expect more, even much more, from president obama? without their support, he would not have been elected in the first place nor re-elected in the second. your turn. >> women have right to expect more. they did expect more seeing second term with the boys club reasserting itself is really discouraging and no where more discouraging than in larry summers' perspective leadership at the fed. larry, girls want do math summers, really? the economic crisis in this country, not to mention has complete contempt for the women who have worked under him including let's never forget brooksly who tried to warn larry and robert rubin about impending financial crisis they were incredibly sneering and mocking and undermining it. can we see some progress here not just for women but for our whole country. >> i don't think that americans by and large think in terms of quota. it is ironic that an administration that things in quota, is that begins to be caught on its own argument not living up to what it professes to believe. >> let
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story
president george w. bush made his case for going to war with iraq and why mideast dictator was an essential step for both the united states and the world. >> the iraqi regime is a serious and growing threat to peace. on the commands of a dictator, the regime is armed with biological and chemical weapons, possesses ballistic missiles, promotes international terror, and seeks nuclear weapons. >> nearly 11 years later another u.s. president is explaining why he feels getting involved in the middle east is in the best interest of the u.s. people. my next guest though says the similarities between the two conflicts are few. jane newton small is a terrific reporter and times magazine reporter. you've written an article that a lot of team are talking about for "time," "six ways syria 2013 isn't iraq in 2003." differences you say include how the u.s. is handling the regime, the time commitment given by the u.s., the support from the arab world and yooirp, weapons of mass destruction, and how much support there is from congress. let's begin with the first difference you list. regime change. explain
't he showing some leadership?" who's he talking about? george bush? "i'll tell you something. when the [skips word] hits the fan and his gang comes to me for advice, i'm not going to provide it unless they are willing to thank me publicly. neither reagan nor bush" -- this must be... >> guest: referring to clinton. c-span: ... bill clinton. "neither reagan nor bush did that after all these years of my advice and, frankly, i've had it. they'll find me when they need me, but i may not be available." did he really mean that? >> guest: i'm not sure he was referring to clinton there. he may have been referring to the bush campaign. i'm not sure. we'll have to clarify that. c-span: but there's a lot of that kind of a quote in the book... >> guest: right. c-span: ... about different politicians and the advice that they would seek from him, but they wouldn't acknowledge it publicly. what was that all about? >> guest: that's right. well, generally that was a problem with the republican presidents, because obviously there was a great political problem for them in dealing with richard nixon. t
, and this was the restriction of george bush and obama couldn't put up with but i agree with everything bob said, this isn't my primary interest but if i ever going to play the legal game, in terms of privacy as some kind of thing the we have. the fourth amendment like most of the bill of rights is a prohibition on government conduct. it doesn't matter what you do or how open you are but there are things both states doesn't have the authority to do because it wasn't given that authority. second of all in many cases it specifically prohibited from engaging in. people open themselves up, and the state has a right to even look at it. >> i will take one that came through the remote viewers, ed snowden, hero or trader, i will quote associates in the nsa that came out, three senior nsa officers who among them working for the nsa, they have all been whistle-blowers for the past seven years trying to go through the official whistle-blower channel, they cannot get any traction on it. that is good enough for me. i want to thank everybody for being here. robert higgs and anthony gregory and especially all of view, this i
. >> let me play a clip. this is the former president george w. bush. he was on fox earlier today and was asked about an imminent u.s. strike. listen to this. >> i can comment about this. the president has a tough choice to make and if he decides to use the military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. >> you worked for president bush and he's clearly trying to stay out of the debate now. he doesn't want to step on the current president as he makes these very, very tough decisions. what kind of marks, fran, will you give the current national security team surrounding the president on this sensitive subject? >> you know, wolf, because it seems clear to me that we are on the eve of decision to engage in military operations, i'm not going -- i'm not about grading the current team. there are things that i might have suggested we do differently, timing differently, tactics differently, strategy differently, perhaps. but tonight is not really the night. when the war -- when there is a military a
to use force in grenada back in the '80s, the former george h.w. bush did not have congressional authorization to use force when he launched troops into panama in 1989. president clinton did not have congressional authorization to use force in kosovo, as you well remember. what does this say about presidential precedent, presidential authority to use force by what the president announced just moments ago? >> well, i don't think this affects the long-term authority of the president. thomas jefferson sent the u.s. marines all the way to the shores of tripoli as the marine corps without congressional authority. as long as congress doesn't cut off the money, presidents can get pretty aggressive in what they do as commander in chief. but i think this tells you the president is getting tremendous pressure, particularly from his left. i don't think he cares about the republicans who are opposed, but i think the fact that people on the left are starting to say, you know, you better slow down and think this through. and particularly just having watched cameron lose the vote in the british
and that's a very, very plausible scenario. >> let me play a clip. this is the former president george w. bush. he was on fox earlier today and was asked about an imminent u.s. strike. listen to this. >> i can comment about this. the president has a tough choice to make and if he decides to use the military, he'll have the greatest military ever backing him up. i was not a fan of mr. assad. he's an ally of iran and he's made mischief. >> you worked for president bush and he's clearly trying to stay out of the debate now. he doesn't want to step on the current president as he makes these very, very tough decisions. what kind of marks, fran, will you give the current national security team surrounding the president on this sensitive subject? >> you know, wolf, because it seems clear to me that we are on the eve of decision to engage in military operations, i'm not going -- i'm not about grading the current team. there are things that i might have suggested we do differently, timing differently, tactics differently, strategy differently, perhaps. but tonight is not really the night. when th
george w. bush did before launching the invasion of iraq and saddam hussein gave him one last chance to do the right thing. refused and as a result, the war in iraq started. presummer bly, could give assad one last chance to avert u.s. military action. >> he could and kerry in his statement the other day, also spoke of the possibility of some point of some kind of negotiated settlement and this may be the president's sort of last moment. he says it's either now or never and he could in fact be doing that right now publicly before he decides to take any kind of military action. >> because yesterday pointedly, s secretary of state, john kerry, he didn't issue any kind of formal demand. he laid out all the u.s. evidence. the u.s. has concluded with quote, high confidence, that the iraqi government used chemical weapons to kill more than 1,400 people and wound thousands of others, but he didn't say directly to the regime in damascus, here is what you must do to calm this situation down. >> and what john kerry did say is the question is no longer when we know. he said the question is what
. there are health reasons why george h.w. bush could not make the trip to washington, d.c. george w. bush just did have heart surgery, although i think i saw him at the smu football game last night. there are also apparently some dispute over how much notice some of the no-shows got from organizers. while we can quibble over they got one, two or three weeks notice, what we do know is this milestone event, the 50th anniversary of the march on washington, was not one that republicans marked on their own calendars and made it a priority to commemorate. after all, they didn't have to be invited to speak to just show up and pay their respects. let's not pretend this is surprising because part of the story of the civil rights movement, a big part is how it fundamentally remade both political parties. leaving one a lot more interested in and responsive to the plight of black americans than the other. this graph tells the story. it shows which party black americans have identified with since 1936. you can see in the early years there around the depression and world war ii, it's basically a tie. african-am
